A Rocha International coordinates a network of 22 like-minded A Rocha Organizations around the world, each demonstrating that practical conservation is a normal part of the Christian faith. These ‘signpost projects’ aim to inspire people of any faith and none about what is possible when we work together for the good of the planet, its creatures and human communities. Working with and through communities, our projects on the ground are protecting wildlife and restoring habitats, offering stories of hope to some of the massive challenges that face nature and people alike.
Cooperation is always a key part of A Rocha’s work. So, just as we seek to work in partnership at a local level, we also hope to tell the conservation story better through ConservationNOW – to communicate more effectively internationally and through social media tools.
The Church has been described as the world’s largest NGO and is one of our key audiences. Our vision is to wake it up to its responsibility and the Biblical mandate for nature conservation. We think joining with others and helping to spread good conservation news will help in that task, and fits with our strapline of ‘Conservation and hope’. The bringing of hope is a vital part of A Rocha’s mission, as it’s deeply rooted in our Christian identity. If conservationists are to inspire hope for the earth and the kind of blood, sweat and tears that make a difference, we need loving and hopeful songs and stories too.
Illegal mining has been spotted in the south-west of Atewa Forest in the last few days, in a community known as Kobreso.
If you haven't already done so, please sign the petition to the President of Ghana to turn Atewa into a National Park: https://t.co/X8PnXUSQBq #saveatewa https://t.co/ga7ofg2aJs
Illegal mining currently ongoing at south-western portions of #Atewa Forest in a community known as #Kobreso. The community members are under siege by some miners protected by military clad persons.

Researchers have developed a generator that could mean that rain may soon be an effective source of renewable energy. It uses a field-effect transistor-style structure that can instantly produce 140V from a single water drop. #ConservationOptimism https://t.co/aKrYgoqGXG
Forgot about #ValentinesDay? Or maybe that let's-not-give-each-other-presents-this-year pact failed? If so, why not give a Gift with a Difference? Like a plant for Mekse Nature Park in Lebanon. Each gift comes with a free e-card to give to your loved one. https://t.co/rWKq0Fy4tf https://t.co/WOzoS1FNZE
